December 1897 in Paris, the age called "Belle Époque". Edmond Rostand is a promising and talented playwright who has not had a lot of luck during his career. Everything he has written until that very momento has been a completely failure. That has taken him to suffer a total creative paralysis that does not allow him to write anything. Thanks to one of his admirers, the great actress Sarah Bernhardt, Edmond has the possibility to meet the best actor of the moment, Constant Coquelin. At the moment of meeting him, Coquelin asked him what kind of plays he is writing. Edmond, depending in which answer gives the actor, drives the conversation to one idea that maybe he can work on: the play Cyrano of Bergerac. Coquelin encourages him to write it as soon as possible. The problem is Edmond does not even know what story is behind that title. Despite that, everybody thinks it is going to big a masterpiece. The movie is an adaptation of the play 'Edmond' from the own director. It is directed by Alexis Michalik ('At Eternity's Gate', 'Le chant du loup') e interpretada por Thomas Solivérès ('Plonger', 'Les aventures de Spirou et Fantasio'), Olivier Gourmet ('Un peuple et son roi', 'Une intime conviction') y Mathilde Seigner ('Ni une ni deux', 'Ibiza'), among others.
